Used this beach and the beach kiosks regularly over the last 10 years, Good sun loungers @ Good price from Charles Watersports. Excellent fresh cooked food from kiosks and 4 for $10 beers 🍺.

As previous travelers have said go to the west side of Island. Make sure you rent a car and you will find some beautiful beaches.
